A Total Waste of Time

When I was 19 I was diagnosed with a leaky heart valve, extremely low blood pressure, and a seizure disorder. Well, I should say when I was 20 because it took an entire year for them to actually tell me what the hell they guessed was up. I got bounced from doctor to doctor and even had to spend a week in a Memphis hospital with my head literally wired to the wall were I couldn't walk further than the shitter.

Afterward I spent about two months having to wear this recording heart moniter. (It looked rather like the old school walkmans and recorded on cassette tapes. Any activity was played back and transmitted over the phone with the device's speaker held to the mic. Sorta like the old modems.) Well, this sorta shit lasted until I was about 23 when I got totally feed up. I was forever having to go for "more tests" on a 1-2 times a month basis (or more) and wasn't getting any sort of solid results. The doctors treated me like shit on their shoes and I began to see they didn't give a fuck, I was just another insurance claim to them.

My next to last visit they started to talk about doing exploratory surgery to "have a look around", their words.) I had almost had it with them and when my last visit came around I was quite literally left sitting on the curb outside over a lousy five dollars, (they had "updated their co-pay fees" and I didn't have the tiny bit extra to cover it. Thus I was asked to leave or I would "escorted" out by security.) That's when I said fuck this and stopped going, threw my worthless ass prescriptions away, and just decided to see what god had in mind for me.

Well, in the 12 years since I still have the same troubles I did before but I've been hardheaded and muscled through it. The last few months however, I've had few times that have really worried me and so I decided, no insurance or not, I had to go back and have it seen about.

So it began again. Last week I went in, explained my problems, got poked & prodded, all the standard shit. They tell me to come back in one week. ("Fuck, it begins anew...") So today I went again. It was a complete waste of my time. Both trips I was treated like shit, all my old records it seems have mysteriously disappeared, and they honestly acted like I was lying to them. Every time I told them something they would tell me "No, no, that's not possible." And to top it off, today, the Doctor gave me a list of tests I am supposed to have done but told me flat that it's not going to happen because I have no insurance. What it boiled down to in so many words was "Fuck you, your broke. Get the fuck outta here unless you have a pocket full of cash."

So I left with my head held low and feeling like a total piece of white trash. I made it about a hundred yards away on my POS scoot and had to stop because I genuinely cried like a kid on the side of the road.

Well fuck it. I guess it'll be another 12 years before I go back or I'll just curl up somewhere and die like bums and animals are supposed to when the time comes, out of sight & out of mind. They wouldn't give a damned and it showed.

This entire episode has done nothing but to make me despise the monied "Beautiful People" of this world even more and the ass-sucking elite like the doctors that forget they took an oath to help people. Help themselves is more like. The bastards.

But we have the best health care system in the world. You don't need money, just go to the emergency room.

That aside, your situation sucks. It shouldn't be that way.

Only if they are for lining 99% of the populace against the wall and gut shooting them for shits and giggles.

Yeah right, the emergency room. I was tossed out of one of those as a teen with a bleeding ulcer one night.

On the other hand, since you have a chronic problem, you may be able to get medicaid or something like that.
I feel dumb even suggesting it, because common sense tells me you've already tried. But if you haven't, you should apply. Go to DSHS and explain what's going on. They may at least be able to point you in the direction of some free clinics.


Posted by Tefl on 06-11-2010 06:44 PM:

Karen, I have applied for it and other programs over and over again. Not a chance. I've been down that road time after time, hat in hand. It turns my gut everytime I have to deal with any sorta thing like that. You should have seen the epic horseshit I had to wade through to get my sister help with her conditions.

As for DSHS, the Doctor I saw today was at a local Health Department because I can't swing anything else. I got a list of supposed "Free" clinics (none of which are closer than Memphis or Nashville) but they honestly told me to forget it because they are overloaded. I'm not a woman or a minority so the chances of an exception being made is practically nill. The closer places at "reduced cost" are the same. At least they were straight up with me about that.

To add to it, I just don't care anymore. I could see the bullshit coming from past experience and the only solution is a nonsolution. Just get out of the road and avoid the truck. Sometimes you just have to accept and embrace the suck.

What are you talking about? Obama and the Democrats fixed healthcare. There are no more problems with it and never will be again, plus it's free now.

Go to the Mayo Clinic.

The florida Campus is probably closest to Sharon TN. They have a better culture there.

That didn't kick in yet no? Wouldn't in theory that Tefl would qualify for Medicaid when it does kick in?

*gives Tefl a hug* I know a guy that had the same problem. He's a worthless pile of flesh and ended up getting a heart transplant on the welfare dime.... And still does the meth and other goodies. Its situations just like this that remind me why I don't believe in a god(s). A worthless fuck like him gets a new ticker to abuse and you struggle. You must have been a granny raper in your last life.

What he said.

Get used to the notion kids. Like it or not, hope and change or not, that is your future regardless who gets elected to what. It's simple math.

Tefl, I would avoid getting a job at all costs, it's much better if you can get a woman with a job.
